A machine player, during a build action, killed the last trog unit in a combat region. It seemed reasonable to us that the combat marker is removed but the player assumed region control switched immediately and wanted to build a structure there. But it seems that region control only is checked at the end of movement. How does control switch hands in that case?

They would immediately gain control of the region.

My only worry with that is that it might actually be more fair to force the combat, if only to resolve region control after combat resolution. As otherwise it gives shredders a hidden ability to not only remove combatants but expedites how quickly the machines can strengthen their position on the board.

If a Battle Region loses one of it's factions, it immediately ceases being a battle region, and control is immediately changed to the remaining faction. A Battle can only occur if there are two different types of minis in a region.

If the Machines use their shredder drones to eliminate a second faction from a battle region they are participating in, then they've gained a new territory and played well. It's the whole point of the drones.

1. Token is removed immediately if there is only one combatant
2. control updates immediately
3. You can only build Structures in Regions you control at the start of the action

To add to the above, there's also an indirect cost to the Shredder Drones giving instant control, since you are not getting VP for the battle nor the kill.

It also open up the region for a completely different battle, so be careful not to draw in unwanted forces.
